The Bruins are struggling mightily to find an identity but they certainly seem to know what they don’t want. And right now, that would be Max Talbot. The veteran forward was sent back to the Providence Bruins for the second time in the past week.
For Talbot, the move can’t be a positive sign as to his future in Boston.The 12-year veteran may be looking at the end of the line with the B’s. The Bruins front office seems to be in the midsts of a youth movement at the forward spot with Ryan Spooner (23), Tyler Randall (24) and Frank Vatrano (21).
The Bruins released the following statement:
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, November 9, that the team has assigned forward Max Talbot to the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League).
Talbot has skated in five games for Boston this year, after appearing in 18 contests last season for the Black & Gold when he registered three assists.
In three games for Providence this season, Talbot has notched four assists with a plus-3 rating.
